Findell Company specializes in producing clothing and textiles. In August, 2021, the company was hit hard by a fire that broke out from the factory. All inventories held in the warehouse and factory were destroyed, including the main office. Jon the company's financial controller and Jane, the cost accountant were at the site after the fire was put out to recover whatever documents they could. Jon hoped they would be able to salvage enough documents necessary to file an insurance claim.
Jane managed to recover some manufacturing cost data and so did Jon. This information was obtained from documents salvaged from the fire.
